Bing Maps Plugin (as replacement for the Google Maps Plugin)

Hi,

Google has stopped giving out news keys for the Google Maps Flash API (please see the appropriate thread for details), so a replacement/alternative was necessary and now here is one in form of the krpano Bing Maps Plugin .

The krpano Bing Maps Plugin uses the same interfaces as the krpano Google Maps Plugin. That means for switching from the Google Maps to the Bing Maps just replace the googlemaps.swf by the bingmaps.swf and change in the xml the Google Maps key by the Bing Maps key.

A key for Bing Maps can be requested here:
https://www.bingmapsportal.com/

The krpano Google Maps Plugin License itself will be of course also valid for the krpano Bing Maps plugin - just rename the googlemaps.license.xml to bingmaps.license.xml.

The Bing Maps Plugin is included in the normal krpano download packages:
http://krpano.com/download/

The plugin documentation:
http://krpano.com/plugins/bingmaps/#top

And here a small demo with a comparison between the Bing Maps Plugin (on the left side) and the Google Maps Plugin (on the right side):
http://krpano.com/temp/bingmapsdemo/

The two maps plugins in the demo were synced by xml code, here the xml of the demo if interested:
http://krpano.com/temp/bingmapsdemo/bingmapsdemo.xml

Some technical details about the Bing Maps Plugin:
The plugin is based on the open-source OpenScales Flash API. In some details the map rendering is not that good as in the Google Maps Plugin, so I will still try to improve the one of other thing, but generally it is already working really well.

Best regards,
Klaus

Hi,

the plugin was updated (download in the first post),

and the maphandcursor, dragging, scrollwheel and dbclicking settings are working now,

How to get bing maps keys when selling a tour including the bing map API?

Hi everyone,

I wanted to be conform with the bing maps terms of use when i'm selling a tour to a client including this API. So i wrote a mail to bing maps and tried to explain the way i use it, but i think i wasn't be understood (english) because they send me a kind of check list with prices (begins at 4500€/year).! (see attachments)
So i'd like to know which way Krpano users get API key for their clients? May be the client has to ask his own API key or i have to buy a bing map licence on Krpano web site for each client and then ask the key for his web server?

Thanks to share your experience. *smile*

Hi Klaus,

Just bought the Bingmaps plugin.

When running local, no problem the krpano logo get lost.

But once online it appears again while the license xml file is in the same folder.

Any idea?

Thanks

Hello, Klaus? What's about esys question, using the bing map-plugin in tours selling to our clients? Do we need a key for every client and if, how does it work?

Thanks and best regards

Hi,

In your tour.xml or in a separate one, up to you. If it's separated, then add an <include> node in your tour.xml leading to your bingmaps xml.

Hope this help.

You need to ask API key here:
https://www.bingmapsportal.com/

latitude and longitude are to be picked up on the map, where you want to locate your spot.


parsing error = syntax error (mistake written or forgotten in your code)

don't forget to try to use the search section first (top right of the current page ) and the bingmaps documentation section
Hope this help
